This is a really simple pudding you can throw together and keep in the freezer for when you have people over. It's not really a recipe, per say, but more of a serving suggestion - just soft ice cream remoulded into a loaf shape with a scattering of tasty toppings. I suppose I'm a bit biased, but I think it looks pretty awesome!

I went for simple vanilla ice cream with some finely chopped mint leaves and dark chocolate chips stirred through. First I let the ice cream thaw before mixing in the ingredients, then I filled my chosen tin half full, sprinkled a layer of frozen cherries (seriously, these things are delicious!) in it and then layered over the rest of the ice cream. It looks messy, so just pop it into the freezer for about half an hour, then you can shape it with the back of a spoon into more of a loaf shape, before topping with the rest of your ingredients. And voila! You can serve it straight from the tin in scoops or lever it out of and slice it like a cake. I recommend leaving keeping in the freezer for a few hours - preferably a few days - so that the mint really infuses the ice cream.

Other toppings to try;
Cherry and toasted coconut
Strawberry and mint
Boozy Baileys and dark chocolate

If you're on a health kick, this would work really well with one-ingredient banana ice cream too!
